The application cycle is now open for the 2015-2016 Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars. This program is a one-year mentored clinical research training program open to pre- and post-doctoral candidates currently enrolled in health-related doctoral programs. Selected participants will have the opportunity to work on a variety of international health projects, including research in chronic non-communicable diseases; mental disorders; and traditional global health problems such as HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and maternal and child health, in low- and middle-income regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Applications are processed through the program’s “support centers,” which includes the University of California, Berkeley; the University of California Global Health Institute; the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; the University of Washington; and Vanderbilt University. All applications are due in early December 2014 (specific application deadlines vary by support center).
The Fogarty International Center and many other NIH institutes and centers collaboratively sponsor the Global Health Program for Fellows and Scholars. The Fogarty International Center is an arm of the NIH that supports and facilitates global health research conducted by national and international investigators, builds partnerships among health research institutions around the world, and trains scientists to address global health needs.
